Comstock On T-HUD Appropriations Bill

June 10, 2015
Press Release

Washington, DC – Congresswoman Barbara Comstock (R-VA) issued the following statement on her no vote on the Transportation, Housing and Urban Development Appropriations Bill: 

 “Since 2009, under a partnership created by the Passenger Rail Investment and Improvement Act of 2008, Congress has continuously fulfilled its annual commitment of $150 million in funding toward WMATA. Unfortunately, the T-HUD Appropriations Bill does not honor that agreement and therefore I could not support this bill as it stands.  I hope, as the appropriations process continues, that the full $150 million will be restored. Congress must meet its $150 million obligation so that Metro can address important safety concerns to keep my constituents safe.”
